Canvas Student app reviews

  • How was this simple feature overlooked?! 1/5

    By Gr3eN J3L1o
    On iPad...cannot copy and paste from Word to Canvas. Super dumb thing to overlook. If i want to write/edit my document in Word and COPY AND PASTE to Canvas this should have been supported day one. Will update review when this is fixed.
  • What even- 3/5

    By Jungkook Biased (iCream)
    I can’t login to my account in the app, but I can on Safari and my computer. Why is that? Is there an error? My username is RachelPicassio. It’s a good software, but it won’t let me login on here!
  • What if grades would be appreciated 4/5

    By SanJorge2
    It would be really convenient.
  • Fabulous app 5/5

    By cbp1719
    Absolutely streamlines college. It’s a must have for your school.
  • Ios 11.4. Iphone 8 or up 3/5

    By Cocot79
    Issues playing videos using IOS 11.4. Iphone 8 or up not happening other ios or iphone
  • Terrible App 1/5

    By Sailor Daze
    This app is filled with errors. I have to delete and reinstall after every use.
  • Allows Split Screen 4/5

    By m.zavala
    Works good. Everything shows perfectly and I have’t come across anything that has bothered me yet. One suggestion, allowing split screen could make things so much easier to use. Sometimes professors uploads things to read that can be exported (like I use Goodnotes to send PDFs there to read + annotate in a notebook). Sometimes professors don’t and it’s like a website that’s being read. It’d be a lot easier and more convenient to have split than to either switch between the app constantly or have the little side bar of the app there which makes it difficult to write.
  • I love this app 5/5

    By ZMadhat
    It is very useful application, easy access to your classes. I love it
  • Please help 3/5

    By TheDirtyBones
    I can’t even get into the app. I know the email and password but it says it’s invalid, I have no idea what is happening with it, please help me find out how to use it!
  • Worst School App I’ve Used 1/5

    By Jake19204
    Canvas is the worst app that I have ever used in my life for school. As a student, it does not load. They claimed that loading would be fixed in a new update, but it obviously wasn’t. Canvas is down about 4-5 times a year, so online schoolwork is inaccessible. Canvas organizes the work in a way that it is not navigable for the user to find it. Canvas, do not respond that you are going to fix the problems. I want an email that will directly contact the developers. 0/10 very disappointed.
  • All these bug fixes and still can’t copy and paste to discussions smh 1/5

    By R.J. Rainbow
    I just don’t get it to be quite honest maybe in the next update I suppose. Even though it’s literally one of the most simple things to fix and yet I still can’t copy and paste from a word document to the discussions. On the computer it work flawlessly but on the iPhone and iPad I can’t do nothing. Such a shame.
  • Like the app but this new update is eh 3/5

    By haaless
    I think the bug fixes have helped to improve the app but I don’t like the new feature on the discussions. You can’t see the post you’re replying to on the discussions page and you used to be able to. This makes posting on iPhone almost impossible. I’ve been using this app for 4 years and now using it in masters classes this is the only complaint I have about it.
  • Canvas 4/5

    By amassino77
    Pretty good app, but it sometimes is slow and makes you submit things multiple times. Over all very useful.
  • So frustrating 1/5

    By Mikey3906
    For the iPhone, it works great. For the iPad, it’s absolute junk
  • Terrible app 2/5

    By Biliejo
    I like Canvas overall, but the app is so limited I think it’s a waste of time. All it shows me is what I already posted, not what others posted. It also won’t let me add comments.
  • Slow and crashes 2/5

    By unsustainedcommunion
    Great idea, love having a mobile option but the UI is messy. I cannot cut/copy/paste into or out of the app. I have lost work multiple times when the app froze, crashed or shut down unexpectedly. Good for being informed but not for actually composing or submitting discussions or work. You are better off using canvas website.
  • It USE to work 1/5

    By Murrrrrlllllllllllll
    I had a iPhone 6 and it worked fine. Updates to iPhone 10 and now I can’t even log in. It was a great app and so easy to get work done on the go but now I’m just going to delete it! It won’t allow me to click buttons or log in. Makes me leave the app and Just brings me to the web page.
  • disappointing 1/5

    By sylvison
    opening a push notification brings you to the home page instead of the page you opened (or more rather tried to open) from the notification. it’s a really annoying feature that’d i’d hope would eventually be fixed. overall slow and unspectacular app
  • Not worth your time. Use the web. 1/5

    By Jeff Mastry
    No way to search or filter on recent discussions. Can’t view teacher comments on assignments. Can’t view class videos. Just use the web interface.
  • Ehhh 3/5

    By inaayahlee
    Was working fine on my iPhone 6. Upgraded to iPhone 8 and now it won’t work. I tried it on android phone and it will work but I continuously delete and re-install the app on my 8 and it won’t work at all. Please fix.
  • Useless 1/5

    By neselie
    It used to work just fine, I could open files from my classes and even watch videos my professors post. Now, every time i open a file or a video, it freezes and doesn’t let me do anything, and doesn’t show the file or video. Kinda useless if I can’t look at anything from my classes.
  • Meh 2/5

    By Athletic--Trainer
    Honestly pretty bad of an app but definitely necessary for schools that use canvas. Always crashes when I try to submit an assignment on mobile, slow and not very user friendly.
  • I’m having trouble w it now 3/5

    By Algae10
    Normally-5 stars. But now it will load my profile, but no classes, inbox, anything. Is this a problem for anyone else lately? I’ve tried deleting and reloading several times, off and on wi-fi, idk what to do except go to it in safari as a web page.
  • Go canvas, go Utes 5/5

    By smmrd2pa
    I’ve alway used Blackboard só changing to canvas was nerve wracking but it’s been smooth! Canvas is user friendly so far. Canvas is on all my apple devices and is easy to use on all. My most fave thing is that I can easily export documents to notability for easy note taking. I also appreciate that professors can modify their main menu list, however I wish I could move them around to fit my likes and needs since some things I use and others I don’t. I also really like how it takes assignments that are due from all my classes and puts it in the top right corner of my canvas screen!!
  • Calendar trouble 4/5

    By Totoru88
    It really comes in handy to check out my grades and to check my assignments. Although I think it’s confusing to use the calendar, I would love to be able to put dates on there but it’s seems like it’s not possible. Other than that, it’s great!

    By issiebelle
    DEVELOPERS!!! There is an issue of copy and pasting typed responses from external apps into the comment portion when replying to group discussions! I’ve used this platform before and the issues did not exist until the recent update. Please fix!
  • Good design, but very unstable 4/5

    By Dawson jessee
    I have used this app for a year now for my high school and overall the app looks very good but it seems as if the app lags at times. I have a brand new iPad and none of my other apps do this. It is the only app that has crashed on me. Wish they could make a smoother interface.
  • Worst online format 1/5

    By Herbandrena
    The entire online format is a disaster. It is disjointed, requires multiple outside programs to utilize much of the required assignments. The app is worse than the online format. It hasn’t worked properly for weeks, so I deleted it and re-installed it, now it just gives me an error message over and over- it is completely useless now. Was there an update that broke the already limited use? For an online Master’s degree, I would expect a far better program, especially at $750/per credit that I am paying.
  • I get spammed with the same notification 1/5

    By iCharnt
    Literally every 60 seconds I get the same notification over and over. “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” “Post your week 1 introduction” It does that, I have pictures to prove it does it every single minute.
  • No copy paste function anymore 1/5

    By djadehengst
    You previously were able to copy and paste into the class discussions, and now that’s not possible. If you type anything over a couple words it’s so slow. The words will lag for minutes after you’re done typing them in. Plus, it’s easier to type and organize your thoughts in a another app (like word) and then copy paste it over. It’s not accessible anymore, and that’s frustrating.
  • This app is crap 1/5

    By Paulleo79
    It was working great and since they updated about a month ago it has not worked since. This new “update” fixed nothing. It’s a MAJOR inconvenience not to be able to use this app that I NEED for school and there seems to be no urgency in fixing it. Extremely frustrating!!!
  • What happened to paste? 1/5

    By <🦋>
    For when the app crashes in between discussion board post... I am no longer able to paste! Let’s place a cache of user data even when the app loses WiFi connectivity or app crashes.
  • Very useful 5/5

    By menriquez5
    I really like that there is an app to help you look at your courses even faster than having to go through the web page and login in a lot of times just to get to where you want but I like with this app you can do just that very quickly :) I really enjoy using it, it’s very helpful! 😊
  • Terrible! 1/5

    By SmilingD3mon
    The app keeps freezing. It stays at its loading with its trademark symbol, but nothing happens. No matter how long I wait, and the app stays with its trademark symbol. I keep restarting the app, but nothing happens. I even try deleting it and re downloading it, but it stays the same! Please fix this, Canvas!
  • Stop 1/5

    By Icu2233445566
    Asking me to rate this app.
  • Perfect app but has one very annoying bug 3/5

    By Custarg
    The app works great. I can easily see messages, grades, files, announcements, etc. however one bug persists and it’s the one that logs the user out whenever they tap a notification. This bug is unbelievably annoying and something that I hope is fixed before I graduate.
  • Perfect 5/5

    By dme90
    Love it
  • Absolutely love it! 5/5

    By Living4Yahweh
    This app is much more modernized then blackboard.
  • Awful app 1/5

    By Sika890
    I normally I don’t write app reviews but this app made me do it. I have to use canvas every single day because my campus use that. It crushes every day. Or doesn’t just work properly.
  • Does not load on my iPad 1/5

    By Shabushi1
    This has been an issue for some time now. No problem on my iPhone. iPad stays on the icon and does not transition to dashboard.
  • Bad! 2/5

    By hrezifff
    Once I plug in my info for the duo, it takes me to an empty screen with my school’s duo logo on it. Need to fix that!
  • Won’t open 1/5

    By amp2008
    I had no issues with this app previously. In fact, I rather liked it. Now it won’t open despite deleting and reloading the app and restarting my phone.
  • Not opening in i phone 7plus 1/5

    By mobinvarghese
    After downloading the latest version . Canvas is not opening ?? Pleas help
  • Current problem 3/5

    By Meanys
    App normally works great. It isn’t opening right now....
  • Love it (except at the moment) 1/5

    By Jlayyyy
    Hey creators of canvas, I love your app, as it allows me to read my chapters and engage in class discussions when I’m on break at work. One problem now. I do love your logo but I wish to push past this screen to access my studies. For the past few days it won’t go past the opening screen with logo. Yes, I have uninstalled, restarted and did a backflip. It just isn’t working. I will change back to a 5 star once I can read my books again. Thanks for your prompt response
  • Fix the bugs!!! 2/5

    By Farr401
    I used to love this app but now it’s becoming one of my most hated. The app is completely useless for discussion board posts right now. Can’t copy and past from my pages app to the discussion board in the app. When I type a post the app lags terribly after I reach 50 words. When a post had more than 3 replies a “read more” button appears but doesn’t work when pressed. All of these things make the app useless for discussion boards. FIX IT!!!
  • Won’t open after update 1/5

    By Elementblaze
    I got the update a couple days ago, since then it won’t even open... just stays stuck on the screen with the logo. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, didn’t work... please fix this!
  • Won’t load 1/5

    By CantinaBob
    The app stays on the loading screen and won’t let me access my classes. Very inconvenient
  • Could be better 3/5

    By Hellokyrah
    Canvas had a lot of problems previously but they have fixed some of them. One problem still occurring is that when I go to a class, and go to a quarter, it’ll say “there are no assignments to display”. It gives a percentage of the quarters grade, but won’t display the assignments.
  • Notification Issue 3/5

    By ykeecjlyfvyegh
    Whenever I click on a notification, I am logged out and have to do “Find my School” again. Very annoying
